Top Ten Favorite Book Covers Of Books I've Read

Top Ten Beach Reads (however YOU define a beach read!)

A beach read for me is something light that you can get lost into while your at the beach. And sometimes it's something actiony and serious that I can get lost to while at the beach. So, anything that I can really lose myself in is a beach read to me. There are some books that really scream beach read, even before you read it, like Heist Society and Love at First Sight. So, this was relatively easy to pick. 

Heist Society by Ally Carter.
This was such a fun and fast read, perfect for any beach.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.
I loved how sweet this book was!! It just makes you all warm inside when reading it.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith.
This was another fast and light read that was really fun.

Once Every Never by Lesley Livingston.
While this was a little disappointing read, it was still really fun and light. Such a great book for reading at the beach.

Glitch by Heather Anastasiu.
This was very exciting read with loads of action in it and I think it would be perfect for a beach read. 

Evernight by Claudia Gray.

This whole series is really fun to read, if I want a fun and fast book I will go to this series.

Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep.
Basically ditto to the Evernight series.

The Iron King by Julia Kagawa.
I love the world in this series, its so vivid and amazing. And it's a fun and fast, perfect for a beach read.

The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones.
I love this plot!! I love books about faeries and this is one of the best fearie book!! And it's great for a beach.

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder.
This is plot is full of action and fight scenes and it's a perfect book to get lost into.

That's my top ten, what's yours?
Happy reading

    I think the last one or the second to last one is my fav book in the Evernight series. But I can't be sure, I haven't read the rest of the series in a long time. I just remember that I liked them.
